Went on a Saturday around lunchtime and the park was PACKED. With so many people and dogs and with the trail being on the easier side, this hike turned more into a social event. Met a bunch of new people; stopped to let my dog play with other dogs. It was a fun afternoon for me, but it might be a little too social for others just wanting to take in the views. Speaking of the views.... just stunning. Probably one of the coolest sights to see are the stops along the trail where you can gaze across the canyon and watch the rock climbers.

It was a beautiful 60-degree day on a Saturday, so it was pretty busy - both to find parking and on the trail. The views are GORGEOUS, and the hike is pretty easy (good for hiking novices with a low-energy dog). There were fewer people on the second part of the trail, once Boulder Co land turns into Boulder City land, but the trail also narrows significantly there (single file versus room for 3 wide along the canyon). We went 2.5 mi of the 4 mi loop and it took us about an hour and 45 mins. Just be warned - there is an $8 park entry fee for cars and $3 park entry for walk-ins in Eldorado Canyon State Park.

Very easy trail to take the kiddo on with beautiful views, awesome photo ops. Bonus on a hot summer day was to let the kiddo play near the creek at the end of our day.
